Claudio's work is greatly influenced by his travels throughout South and Central America. Where he spends time in traipsing through ancient and sacred ruins. Absorbing the designs and symbols of these cultures. So much so that his business name Imix is a Mayan word, meaning sea dragon.
Claudio in his booth at Portland Saturday Market.
You will find him at the market most every day of the season.
While Claudio's website has stellar photos of his handmade jewelry,
I really like his booth set up at Portland Saturday Market and how it shows off his pieces.
Such lovely rings!
Beautiful in its simplicity, that allows the stone to shine.

There in the bottom right hand corner, you can see little boxes. What they are is precious and semi precious gemstones, that are available for customers to choose their stone and then work with Claudio to create a custom piece of handmade jewelry.
